Bookshelves, updated

Earlier this week I showed you my new bookcases. So great, right? I’m still in the unbelieving phase of having them. Whenever I turn the corner into the dining room I’m still surprised they are there.

It didn’t take me long to start adding stuff on the blank walls around the bookcases, I mean, this is me, if I see a blank wall I’m going to nail crap to it!

As for the other blank areas…
